A Craving For Chocolate Cake @ 12 November 2009 03:34 AM

I've been making my homemade chocolate cake for about two years now. I have perfected the recipe and you will think it's the best chocolate cake ever. So if you're craving chocolate cake during your pregnancy, this is the recipe for you.

2 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 cups sugar
1 cup apple sauce
1 cup hot coffee
1 cup 2% milk
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla

Sift dry ingredients in large bowl. Add apple sause, coffee and milk. Mix at medium speed for 2 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla, beat 2 more minutes. (Batter will be a little thin.) Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan and bake at 325 for 45 to 60 minutes. Test with toothpick until it comes out of center of cake clean.

For a great icing combine 1 cup of crisco and 1 cup sugar and mix until fluffy (About 15 minutes). Set aside. Over medium heat, combine 1/2 cup milk and 2 TBsp. of flour. (Hint, mix the 2 TBsp. of flour with a little milk, mix and add to remaining milk). Cook milk mixture until thickened (stirring constantly). Let Cool. Add milk mixture and 1 tsp. of vanilla extract to sugar mixture and blend for another 15 minutes. We call it Twinkle Icing.
